“I’m thrilled about having the opportunity to provide well-stocked stores filled with fresh produce and meat cut daily in stores across Tennessee and Oklahoma,” Gunn said.
“My team and I are passionate about bringing great quality and value to our customers and hope to reach even more families locally as we make improvements and welcome shoppers back to the store.”
As part of this new ownership, Gunn is looking forward to working with local vendors to bring in products that are important to customers.
“What is great about the Save A Lot business model is I can customize my assortment to fit the community needs,” Gunn said. “So if there is a product any local customer wants to see in any of our nine Save A Lot stores, we want to know so we can work to show all these communities we are committed to being their hometown grocer.”
Gunn also plans to remodel all nine stores in the future.
“Richard and his team are first-rate operators, and we’re excited to see them take on these locations,” said Leon Bergmann, Save A Lot CEO. “I know their commitment to serve customers with quality products and top-notch service will benefit each community their stores are in for many years to come.”
